Pink donates $500,000 to Australian fire services as the wildfire crisis worsens

The Singer ‘Pink’ has donated half a million US dollars to local fire services in Australia amid the country’s worsening wildfire crisis.

More than 20 people have died and millions of animals are believed to have been killed in the blazes that have ravaged the country in recent months.

At least eight people have died this week in New South Wales and neighbouring Victoria, Australia’s two most-populous states, where more than 200 fires are currently burning.

Pink is one of the many celebrities to have spoken out about the fires, revealing her pledge of half a million US dollars (£382,043) in a post on Twitter.

“I am totally devastated watching what is happening in Australia right now with the horrific bushfires,” she wrote.

“I am pledging a donation of 500,000 dollars directly to the local fire services that are battling so hard on the frontlines. My heart goes out to our friends and family in Oz.”
